Thread Name: Lyr Req: Oh, the Glory Gates (?)
Subject: Lyr Add: GLORY GATES (G. F. Horr, 1899 )
Thanks, guys. I have the lyrics now- one of my sisters mailed them to me. A brother and another sister scoured hymn books galore and didn't find the song. Trust this one sister to remember the words- I should've thought of her first.

GLORY GATES

I'm looking for the city built of God
Where the many mansions be
I am walking now the path that Jesus trod
And his face I soon shall see

Chorus:
Oh the glory gates are ever open wide
Inviting the world to come
Oh the glory gates are ever open wide
To welcome the weary home

Through the valley of the shadow I may go
But his grace shall be my stay
Though the path be dark and dangerous, I know
He will guide me all the way

'Tis the glory now that fills and thrills my soul
As I walk the narrow way
I am looking for the heavenly light to dawn
That shall rise in endless day
